Since I've met Inspector Climate, I don't listen to music that much any more. We have slightly different tastes in music for one. But mostly, I just never think of listening to music.
But I've been making an effort to listen to music on my walk to and from yoga a few days a week.
I'm not sure why, but I've been drawn to music that I listened to obsessively in college:
Scissor Sisters - Better Luck
I listened to the song on repeat throughout my sophomore year of college. A guy I was dating (and I use that term EXTRAORDINARILY loosely) had gone out on a date with another girl that summer and had kind of stopped talking to me for awhile.
And I convinced myself that I'd have better luck next time. That this time I'd "stretched my imagination."
Whenever I hear this song, I think of him. I think of how we hurt each other over and over. I think about how a day wouldn't go by that I didn't think of him back then, and now I'm only reminded when this song comes up. I'm so grateful that after a few "next time's" I had much better luck.
